Aloha to the Annapolish Irish Festival - Out and About



The Infamous Welsh Cookie Co. intrigued me.  From its website (link),

Welsh Cookies are known by many other names, including Miners Cakes or Welsh Cakes. The Welsh name for them is Pice Ar Y Maen. Generations of coal and slate miners in Wales took these nutritious “cakes” to work every day. Traditionally, Welsh Cookies contained black currants and nutmeg. Miner’s wives rolled and fried the cakes each morning much like we now make pancakes. The resulting cookie has a biscuit-like flavor and texture. I often tell people that if you combined the best characteristics of pancakes, shortbread, scones, and biscuits, the result would be a Welsh Cookie.



Of course I had to chat with the teens manning the Kona Ice truck.   The guys told me they had lei tucked away ...



... and I asked them to wear the lei and give me the shaka!



Kudos to the Vets for their service!

Mahalo,
